On Monday, Principal Don Montoya and ASB president Catherine Start spoke over the intercom during 2nd period to get the fundraising drive started:
“As most of you know, on Thursday, March 1st, a tornado swept right through Enterprise High School in Enterprise, Alabama, destroying the school and killing eight students. Many were left severely injured and lost their homes due to this tornado. We can only imagine the pain the students of Enterprise High School are suffering," Start and Montoya said in their joint announcement. "These students have just lost their classmates, their friends and their school. In a mere 30 seconds, their lives were changed—forever."
